An easy healthy Greek layer dip recipe that is a great appetizer or healthy snack. Made with hummus, pesto, feta, olives and sun-dried tomatoes.
I first made this healthy and easy Greek layer dip for my last day of work as a medical student at Stanford. While there, I lived in the graduate dorms and had no supplies to bake anything sweet. As much as I brainstormed ways to make cupcakes or even cookies, I couldn’t do anything without mixing bowls, baking pans, flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, vanilla, cookie sheets, muffin tins… you get the point.
The recipe was a huge hit. One of the docs I work with actually took out some scratch paper and wrote down all of the ingredients so he could share it with his wife! I would call that a success.
The recipe keeps things simple by using store bought ingredients instead of making things like hummus and pesto from scratch. It’s one of those awesome halfway homemade recipes that is still super impressive. With all of the colorful layered veggies and the pop of feta it is sure to grab peoples’ attention as a dish to pass. It also makes a great healthy snack that you can keep in the fridge and enjoy for a couple of days.
